are also up and coming. while the gender balance is 60/40 favoring women for barkeepers, it's a more even split for photographers. bottom line - even though women may be gaining ground in certain fields-- their paychecks and their titles don't always compete with those of their male counterparts, so there's still a lot of work to be done. i'm alison kosik in new york. >> coming up speed enforcement of the golden gate. healthvest for the going in the next edition of people behaving badly. how fast were they going?...
